Positive signs of pregnancy include signs that the fetus emits. These signs include observing the fetus on ultrasound or x-ray, auscultating the fetal heart rate, and observing fetal movements.
4 KEY FACTS
Fetus on Ultrasound

By 5-6 weeks gestation the fetus is able to be viewed by ultrasound and fetal heart rate is heard on ultrasound by 6 weeks. Observing the fetus or hearing the fetal heart rate on ultrasound is a positive sign of pregnancy.

Fetal Heart Rate by Doppler or Fetoscope
